Mike Trout went 2-for-3 and hit his 19th homer Monday as the Angels beat the Rangers 9-5.
He was also hit by a pitch. With the Angels making no noise at all, Trout isn't getting quite as much attention as usual this year. Still, it'd be a shame if he's overlooked in the MVP race because of the front office's failures. He's hitting .319/.424/.567 with 62 RBI and 72 runs scored. He's also struck out just 73 times in 93 games, a nice reduction from the last two years (184 times in 2014, 158 times in 2015). Jul 19 - 1:59 AM

Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

The double was Trout's 21st of the season. He hit it off of Orioles starter Chris Tillman in the first inning to push the Angels to a 1-0 lead. Chris Davis would obliterate that advantage with a two-run homer in the fourth to help the O's pull away for a 4-2 victory. For his part, Trout will head to San Diego for the All-Star Game on the strength of a .322/.425/.567 triple-slash, 18 homers, 58 RBI and 15 steals. Trout has already surpassed the 11 steals he posted for the entire 2015 season.

He went 1-for-4 with a walk, drove in two RBI and scored twice. Trout's power numbers are as stellar as everyone expected coming into the season. His owners have to be pleasantly surprised that he has picked up the pace in stolen bases. He stole 11 bags all of last year but already has 14 before the All Star break this year.

Trout hit a solo homer in the fourth inning before adding a two-run double in the sixth. The home run was his 14th of the season, and Trout has 47 RBI and 47 runs scored. Both rank inside the top 10 in the American League, and his .302/.409/.540 line is nothing to sneeze at, either.

Mike Trout (thumb) is in Monday's lineup against the Twins.

Trout gave the Angels and fantasy owners quite the scare when he was hit in the right thumb by a pitch on Sunday, but fortunately he only suffered a contusion. He'll serve as the designated hitter on Monday, but should return to the field soon enough.
Jun 13 - 7:09 PM

Mike Trout was diagnosed with a right thumb contusion after X-rays came back negative on Sunday.

Trout was lifted from Sunday's game after getting drilled by a pitch from Indians reliever Tommy Hunter. Thankfully, he appears to have avoided any major injury and should be able to return to the lineup in a day or two.
Jun 12 - 7:09 PM

Mike Trout was forced to leave Sunday's game in the eighth inning after getting drilled in the right wrist area by a pitch from Tommy Hunter.

Baseball fans and fantasy owners alike must now hold their collective breath until we learn of the X-ray results that he's presumably heading for right now. Trout went 1-for-4 with a pair of walks before departing and is hitting a blistering .309/.415/.543 on the season with 13 homers, 44 RBI and nine stolen bases. We'll pass along any updates as soon as they become available.

Mike Trout had a strong game with three hits and his 13th blast of the season on Wednesday.

He improved his slash line to .309/.413/.553, which is very close to his career line. You are getting exactly what you expected when you drafted Trout this spring.
